Programming Your Scanner

  • Consider using the RadioReference Web Service to automatically download information from the RadioReference database to your radio.
  • Ask in one of the state forums for a file for your area. Be sure to specify which software and scanner you are using, since not all formats are interchangeable. Be sure to go to the User CP (which is in the blue toolbar under the thread title) and enter your location data (county/state is fine) under Your Profile and Edit Your Details.
  • Download a file from another website to use as a template.
